In just four episodes, Colton Cumbie has made a strong case for being the most hated Survivor contestant of all time. Whether it is the borderline racist comments, the bullying of a little person, or just overall disdain for anyone and anything he comes into contact with, Colton may as well just attach his picture next to the word “unlikable” in the dictionary. But is he the most despicable character in the history of the show? Jessica Shaw and I debate that very point in the newest installment of the InsideTV Podcast. And we call in an expert witness in the recently ousted Bill Posley to ask the stand-up comic point blank: Is Colton a racist? Bill answers that as well as explaining his reasoning for agreeing to go to Tribal Council even after his tribe won the immunity challenge. (Turns out he thought Colton was going home!)
But we’re not even close to being done. We then bring in resident Bachelor expert Kristen Baldwin, who has a very special guest of her own — Nanny! The grandmother of EW’s own Breia Brissey, Nanny is obsessed with The Bachelor, and she has some very strong feelings about Courtney to share. How strong? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out, and trust me, you need to listen. This senior-citizen spitfire will have her feelings known, dammit!
